If you didn't yet know, Dwayne Johnson is People's Sexiest Man Alive 2016. I, too, am impossibly pleased with this selection. I was first introduced to Johnson as "The Rock" by my older cousins who had a major obsession with all things wrestling growing up. Back then, he wasn't much to me other than a seemingly menacing dude who had really great control over his eyebrow movements and wore really tight spandex. Over the years, though, The Rock's persona changed. I don't think anyone but us '90s kids even call refer by his alter ego anymore. The wrestler got into acting, dropped his wrestling shtick, and got real.
As it turns out, the real "Rock" was infinitely more entertaining and endearing than any overdramatized act that the wrestling world could come up with. If you follow Johnson on social media, you know that he's way more than a pretty face and an impossibly chiseled body. The actor uses his fame for good and it's probably the most enticing thing about him. Actually, even when you leave fame out of it, his dedication to his family, friends, pets, and home life is equally as enchanting.
Here are 16 different Instagram moments that prove Johnson's Sexiest Man Alive title is well deserved.
